President Obama continued his assault on down-ballot Republicans in Nevada Sunday, criticizing Senate candidate Joe Heck and the GOP at large for enabling Donald Trump, while urging Nevadans to send Democrats to Congress.

“Presidents can’t do everything on their own,” Obama said. “We can’t elect Hillary [Clinton] and saddle her with a Congress that is do-nothing.”

“When Donald creates his TV station, I’m sure Joe Heck will be up on there, giving interviews,” he said.
